Jessie's Yanmega (Japanese: ムサシのメガヤンマ Musashi's Megayanma) is the only Pokémon caught by Jessie of Team Rocket during her travels through Sinnoh.

History

As a Yanma

Jessie caught Yanmega as a Yanma in The Thief That Keeps On Thieving! after Tyler battled and weakened her. After she captured her, Yanma was sent to Giovanni as their second successful theft. However, he immediately returned her after analyzing her and realizing she wasn't good enough, along with the fact that they already had plenty. Jessie then decided to train Yanma herself—unbeknown to the fact that Yanma already knew Ancient Power, Jessie sent her into battle, who ended up quickly evolving into Yanmega.

She was used often by Jessie, sometimes replacing Seviper as her main fighter. So far she has shown herself to be a strong battler, as she destroyed Pikachu's Thunderbolt with her Sonic Boom attack as seen in A Lean Mean Team Rocket Machine!.

Yanmega made her Contest debut in Battling the Generation Gap! where she was used in the Celestic Contest Appeal Rounds. However, she failed to get Jessie to the next round.

Yanmega's Ability activated

In A Shield with a Twist, Jessie entered Yanmega in the Majolica Town Contest and won her second Ribbon. In Another One Gabites the Dust!, Jessie entered Yanmega in the Chocovine Town Contest where she passed the appeal round with a dazzling performance, while revealing Yanmega's Ability to be Speed Boost.

In Pursuing a Lofty Goal!, James borrowed Yanmega in order to enter into a PokéRinger competition. Jessie was reluctant as James failed to win the competition with her Dustox before. Like before, James failed to win with Yanmega.

In Dawn of a Royal Day! she was used in the Arrowroot Town Contest appeal round where she created an amazing performance with her Ancient Power.

She was also used in the Sinnoh Grand Festival where she helped Jessie get through to the semi-finals.

Following the Team Rocket trio's journey in Sinnoh, Jessie was forced to leave Yanmega at Team Rocket's headquarters as she is not a Pokémon native in the Unova region and would seem suspicious.

Personality and characteristics

Though not much is known about Yanmega's personality to distinguish her from others of her species, she is shown to have a habit of landing on the heads of people and other Pokémon. She has been shown to land on Jessie, James, and Seviper's heads, and even Ash, Dawn, and Brock's as a Yanma before she was caught by Jessie. Yanmega is shown to be a powerful Pokémon compared to the rest of Team Rocket's Pokémon, being the closest of any of them to send Ash and his friends blasting off. She is very loyal to Jessie.
